6:01 pm
tomorrow will be legislative movement on a bill that would give federal workers who have been furloughed of back pay that it will sign. and so of the dozen or so bills the house republicans already passed, this is the one that the administration and democrats a fictive a signal that they are open to which is led to a number of house republicans say they want to pay the government workers but they won't open the national park to find cancer researcher things like that. the big story also today was lunch. president obama and the vice-president taking a walk from the white house. a lot of security involved in that, to have lunch. in that president obama said that if only the speaker would put a bill to fund the government on the house floor that it would pass and would fund the government and that is the only way that we get out of this. to that the speaker says, no, the congress here on the house side will continue to pass smaller bills that fund certain
6:02 pm
specific portions of the government, not one large bill that funds the entire government . they refuse to take his bills up or if it does it will reject them. the impasse continues with the signal in sight then it will be ending anytime soon. neil: the very fact that they found common ground, making sure that the compensation delayed or otherwise or for some of federal workers that seem to break a little bit of a logjam. >> it did. and then you have republicans criticizing the move. they welcomed it in that it is a proposal that the white house says sign-on to and says that it will sign, but they say why not sign the other smaller bills. we found ourselves arguing over the same thing we have been arguing over. neil: all right. thank you. in the meantime,. >> it is particularly unfortunate that the republican congress has brought us to this
6:03 pm
juncture. this republican shut down did not have to happen. >> republican leaders in washington that the ideology has common sense which republicans in congress just to shut down the federal government. >> republicans are following a very explicit strategy. >> republicans and house of representatives refused to fund the government. neil: well, they do sound similar. president obama and clinton on this idea. dick armey was there for the last go around with president clinton. majority leader at the time. you know, it is a matter of how it is perceived and how long it drags on. that last,ou know, rise of less than one in three weeks. what you think of this one? >> well, it is just as bad a position for the republicans as we were in '95. we had that debate. that was supposed to shuing down the government. the argument that i made was america thinks republicans don't
6:04 pm
like government. therefore america is going to blame republicans when the government shuts down. democrats like government. it is incongruous to the country to think that they were shut it down. w, the thing that is most tragically different from 95 with this shutdown is we hav now spent every day since the first of october talking about government shut down and hal nasty, mean the republicans are without the shut down we would have been talking about the national debate, what about how bad is obamacare. neil: with everyone to say busted by overplaying their hand every budgeby complaining about the fallout from the shutdown. they had to know that there are going to be a lot of ink amises to many, including visiting some of our favorite shrines in asia the government down. they claim the shock it is.
6:05 pm
>> he had it right. first of all, you cannot -- you cannot threaten stopping somebody with something that they know is a blessing in their life. the democrat the best thing that happened to them is they did not have to have a national debate on october 1st under obamacare. they had been dreading for two or three years. all the sudden the republican says, let's change the subject and make us the bad guys instead of president obama. this guy who just two weeks ago ended up being the bad cop to the russians president could, now has positioned himself as the good cop. neil: well, he has the pr upper hand. you get enough for both sides. i name sources that there are kind of either enjing it are not enjoying it. the fact of the matter is that is never tied a partisan venture something like this to drag on. that was pretty much the conclusion of bill clinton in '95 and '96 and yours as well. many say the same.
6:06 pm
how do you think you will get around this? what do you think will be the final means by which they move on? >> well, here is a valid get it. eventually at some points in a related the republicans are going to concede to the democrats. why? because the democrats are advantaged by this configuration they are never going to give it up. this is there being off the hook. now, here is a deal. you're not going to belie this, but there has been a timer to in my lifetime when i screwed up riley. i had done the wrong thing. and i have found that when you have done that, as a stand up and say, you know, i should not have done that. thus unto it. neil: republicans and to say, we screwed up. let's move on. neil: okay. >> short. >> the nation will always forgive you if he's sick mice grew up. should not have done that. the sun to it and get on with the realists.
6:07 pm
and then -- and by the way, i want the republicans to fight. the difference between me and a lot people, want them to fight and win. the republicans. neil: a lot of moderate. this wasn't the way to go. well, you might be right. neil: the perfect vehicle. >> we shall see. it is always a pleasure, sir. all right. fair and balanced. we do have a lot coming to model is sicily paid government workers during the shutdown. democratic congresswoman, very good to have you. what is your sense, when this is going and how long it drags on? tomorrow's vote on paying the workers furloughed notwithstanding. >> well, tomorrow it will have strong support on the democratic side to help these families pay their mortgages and rant that are out of work. you could pass this.
6:08 pm
thirty minutes if the speaker would bring a clean continuing resolution to the congress and have an up or down vote. over 180 democrats have signed a letter saying that they would vote for a ccean sierra. and republicans in a sense one because they got the number that they wanted which was well below the $72 billion less than what the leader reid wanted. neil: but the overall budget in funding, to get to this next town. but what some in your party, it is still high. and -- but not high enough. abolish republicans is that it is above this sequestration levels. so they feel that that would be bad for them. how do you reconcile this difference? >> i would say put it on the floor and have a vote. 180 democrats have signed a letter that they would vote for their clean cr. we have also filed a motion to
6:09 pm
discharge. it will take seven days to mature to try to get a bill on the floor. we can get a vote on a quasi are. republicans can say yes to their own victory. they got the number that they wanted. neil: as you know, this might have been a clumsy means by which to get your wish. i think even dick armey said more ls the same, but i am wondering now whether some democrats privately worry that the longer this drags on the size the fact of the government and the conomy, the worse it could look for them. a flip side to this is that a lot of people finding out it is not the end of the world when the government shut down and we're finding out that there are a lot of nonessential government employees and apparently nonessential agencies when they are stripped to their basic, you know, services and skeletal staff. that might boomerang against democratto argue for more spending. >> well, i don't know anyone who wants to close down the
6:10 pm
government. overwhelming, the polls show the majority of republicans and democrats to not want to close down the government. neil: you don't buy this unnamed sour of the white house the reportedly says the longer this go on -- i think you get the gist of it. >> oh, i think that it is very damaging to republicans. because number one, people do not support trying to defunund obamacare, the affordable care acts or put off the data of its enactment in tying it to closing down the budget. this was reaffirmed by the supreme court. neil: are you worried. >> the law of the land. neil: draw the necessary intention for the health care law that a lot of americans don't quite grasp. they see a lot of problems, bumpy start. so in no way a ce serving republicans who have had nothing more than remind americans of
6:11 pm
their problems. you have problems. >> well,l, if there are buses ae problems, let's open up the governments of them and move forward. this is hurting our economy. they have said that within four days we will lose 2 percent of the gdp. it goes on for several weeks. they predict that we will lose percentage points. we cannot even get the jobs numbers. we should be working on manufacturing jobs, not manufacturing a crisis. this is a self-inflicted crisis. believe me, there are enough out there without stirring up was that we don't need to have. neil: and in your debt, congressman, in your gut lng think this last? >> well, i hope that next week we will meet and vote on a clean c.r. and move forward. if not we are going to be pushing up to the debt ceiling on october 17th. that is dangerous with a fragile economy. some economists say this puts us back into a recession which we could lose the dollar as a
6:12 pm
reserve currency for the first time. the full faith and credit of the nuys states would not be honored. the markets would fall. most people believe that we would not be crazy enough to do such a catastrophic thing for our economy. neil: we have been at the brink before. he will see what happens, congresswoman. thank you for staying late. we appreciated. >> thank you. neil: all right. that date that the congressman was referring to, the time when the treasury secretary says it will be added that if, down just 30 million ourself. that is it tough. many argue that that number is actually tell lucy busey and could be moreike a torch 20th. bottom line, we are running of money and time which was essentially what the filibuster was all about. that 21 hour filibuster. you know, he came out in the eyes of the mainstream media looking like a crazy guy. that woman on the left, when the

protecting the life and the people in the state of exas overwhelmingly. neil: you don't think this she has a shot at becoming governor? >> i think it is of very difficult task for someone that is as farut of the mainstream as wendy davis is to be successful being elected governor of texas. this election is going to be about who has a vision for continuing taxes on the path to be the most successful job creation state in america. and i cs test grad and it is the person who will continue with policies on taxes and regulation and stopping frivolous lawsuits and continuing to have accountable public-school is. as the reason the folks out in orange county, by the way, are laugher said to tell you love. he is helping us out. the people in orange county california get it when it comes to how you create a climate of competition. and that is what these governors races are really going to be about.
6:20 pm
neil: i think they are about all. i always thought you could come back and say, the longest serving governor in the country and to say, you know, but that is just me. but i do think that there is a disconnect between what the washington crowd, what they are into and what average toaster into. so that is the argument over the government shut down, if you got my weighing in on that in this trap the republicans are going to get the blame for bringing it to a halt. the counter argument is, we are hearing from our base, and a fine the government itself and the way we go about things and endorsing and rubberstamp and more spending, that is really what is bothering them. that is not showing up in polls. you agree? >> i think americans, republicans or democrats, government to function properly. and they are looking to washington d.c. and seeing dysfunction. they're looking to the state capitals and seeing places, in
6:21 pm
most cases, where it is working. washington is not where people look for solutions anymore, and that is a shame. washington should do a few things and do them well and then let it dispersed back to the states to be where the bulk of the innovation and experimentation really work. and that is what our founding fathers meant for us to do. and so blue state versus red state policies, i think it's a great conversation and is of the reasons americans for economic freedom is founded. dr. laugher and others, being on the board and helping to push that conversation across this country. americans by and large going to say, you know what, we really like the idea of job creation pier you can take better care of your family. and the washington mentality is, we are going to count success by how many people are on government subsistence, government assistance. and governors, success by how many people have a job and can't

hour-and-a-half after the shooting in the car chase thing went down in washington democratic lawmaker sheila jackson lee was saying this. >> rather than respond in a way that leaves 8,000 federal employees unemployed and god knows the tragedy of this poor person who came on the hill in a black car, no one knows what could drive this person to do this. but what i would say to you is, let's get our wheels back on, serve the american people, bring them back, though for a bill today that will open the government. neil: all right. well, shut down or no, this woman was certifiable. and she is of the congressman, talking about the woman involved in the incident in washington for. effect of the matter is gile when you attach and assign blame just as washington's mayor did after the navy yard shootings two weeks earlier and say that well, security was compromised because of sequestration cuts, neither was proven to be the case. in fact, not remotely.

6:50 pm
nuclear-weapons insured we did not get into a shooting war. if you would just take a little bit further and said, mr. president, you need to negotiate with congress. they have the power of the purse . >> no, he was not going to say that. obviously the technical issue here is that if you don't make good on a bond interest payment that everything is the fan. so then it comes time to prioritize of we're only going to be in a debt ceiling situation where we get only a few bills, we have to put that of top. when any president of either party either risk in such a situation not making good on those debt payments first? >> you know, in the past i would have said there is no president in his right mind to would never risk something like this. but i don't think we're playing with anybody in their right mind in washington right now. this is childish and an outrage and an embarrassment in the rest of the world. i agree that the nuclear bomb analogy did not go far enough because the mutually assured destruction seems to be the
